We use MOSS 2007 for our Intranet, with single sign-on. A femal employee has changed her name because of a divorce, so we've changed her name in Active Directory. However, her previous name is still showing on our Intranet. I guess that somewhere there is a buffer or cache in SharePoint where this person's name is stored. Is there any way to update her name?

Go to Central admin
Shared Services
User profiles - find the profile ,
Delete the profile
resync ( that should be done periodically anyways  , please confirm you are not getting any errors)

If that does not work , you can manually recreate  the profile .

best of luck.
